Allen is the Managing Director for Envision, an MBE-certified construction management firm.
In 2009, Allen and his son established Envision on the principles of integrity, building people, and relationships. This came just a year following the economic downturn of 2008, when Allen and his son suffered extreme financial hardship, losing all of their contracts, employees, and practically everything they owned. A year later, with a renewed mindset built on faith, the father-son duo set out to build a company bigger than themselves. Over a decade later, the two have created a company where a “it’s bigger than you” philosophy has shaped the company’s culture both internally and externally; a culture that can be recognized on every project and throughout their team.
With over 30 years of experience in the construction industry, Allen has led project teams and worked across numerous building types, such as higher education, hospitals, hospitality, worship centers, and more.
